The Asus Nexus 7 is fairly nippy out of the box, rocking a quad-core Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.3GHz.
We’ve recently seen the budget tablet overclocked to 1.7GHz, but now we’re hearing that the Asus Nexus 7 has been pushed further still. Crikey.
The 1.7GHz Asus Nexus 7 overclock yielded impressive (to put it mildly) benchmark results, specifically topping 7,000 in Quadrant. But it gets even better.
The Asus Nexus 7 has been pushed to a full 2,000Mhz. Yes, that’s 2GHz, topping 8,000 in Quadrant benchmarks. Surely that’s illegal? To give that figure some context, it’s almost double the HTC One X.
Needless to say, there are all sorts of issues – as you’d expect when dealing with an “experimental test kernel” (definitely our favourite phrase of the day).
Specifically, the 2GHz Asus Nexus 7 suffers from stability problems, and is said to get prettaaaaay hot.
Still, exciting stuff. Er, if you like that kinda thing. Head over to xda (where else?) for more info. EDIT: don't do it! See Matthew's concerns below.
